Annabelle, a horror film about a possessed doll and the terror it causes was originally released in 2014. A prequel movie, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema’s Annabelle: Creation is due out in cinemas on 11th August, 2017. To tie in to the film, a virtual reality (VR) interactive film has been released titled Annabelle: Creation VR – Bee’s Room.
Annabelle: Creation VR – Bee’s Room is available on Samsung Gear VR as well as via YouTube 360 and Facebook 360. The short film puts the user in the role of someone trapped in the room of a young child, forced to play a twisted game of hide and seek with the possessed and malicious doll, Annabelle.
The short VR experience was created by Pasadena-based VR content creators SunnyBoy Entertainment and aims to provide a taste of the panic the protagonists of the film will feel as Annabelle hunts them down.
The Annabelle: Creation movie tells the story of a dollmaker named Samuel Mullins and his wife, who open their homes to some a nun named Sister Charlotte and some children made homeless by the closure of the local orphanage. However, the apparently pleasant house holds a dark secret, involving the Mullins daughter who died years ago, and whose angry spirit may yet live on in the form of the doll, Annabelle.
Further information can be found on the official Annabelle: Creation website, where the VR short can also be found.
